“When men began to multiply on the face of the Earth, and daughters were born to them, that thesons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and took them wives of all which they chose.” Genesis 6:1-4
These ‘Sons of God’ (Ben Elohim or fallen angels) were known as the Watchers. The title ‘Watcher’ simply means ‘one who watches’, ‘those who watch’, ‘those who are awake’ or ‘those who do not sleep’. These titles reflect the unique relationship between the Watchers and the human race since ancient times.
These angelic beings were given the task by God to be earthly shepherds of humans. It was their job to watch over the human species and report back on their progress. However they were confined by the divine prime directive not to teach or become sexual active with humans. Regrettably, some of them, decided to ignore God’s command and eventually became known as the “Fallen Watcher Angels”.
